History of Savannah State University 

On November 26, 1890, enabling legislation was passed by the Georgia General Assembly to establish 
a school for the education and training of colored students, which was to operate as a part of the 
University of Georgia. One hundred and seventeen years later, the college has become Savannah 
State University, the oldest public historically black university in Georgia. 

With land acquired by the mandate of the Second Morrill Land Grant Act of August 30, 1890, a 
preliminary session of the new college was held in the Baxter Street School Building in Athens, 
Georgia, with Richard Robert Wright, Sr., as principal. On October 7, 1891, the new college, 
named the Georgia State Industrial College for Colored Youths, moved to its present location in 
Thunderbolt, Georgia. Wright was president and there were five faculty members: Loring B. Palmer, 
A.B.; Frank Cobb, A.B.; Alexander Ashton; Reverend Leigh B. Maxwell, A.B.; Reverend James M. 
Simms, proctor and steward; and Decatur Suggs, vice-president. 

Wright was the first of 12 presidents to lead this illustrious institution. The university awarded its first 
baccalaureate degree to Richard R. Wright, Jr., in 1898. He went on to become the first black man 
to receive the Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania (1911), and later to become 
the president of historic Wilberforce University. During Wright's tenure as president (1890-1921), 
President William McKinley (1898) and President William Howard Taft (1912) visited the campus 
and spoke to students and faculty in the Peter W Meldrim Hall. 

Cyrus Gilbert Wiley, class of 1899, and the first alumnus to become president of the university 
( 1 92 1 - 1926), followed Wright. Benjamin F. Hubert, who came to Georgia State College from Tuskegee 
Institute, served as president from 1926-1947. It was during his tenure that the college became a full- 
time degree granting institution, without high school and normal programs, and became a member 
of the University System of Georgia (1932). The name of the college was changed to Georgia State 
College in 1932. In 1950, the name of the college was changed to Savannah State College and in 
1996, the name was changed to Savannah State University. 



The Significance Of The Academic Mace 

Observing the centuries-old convocation procedures, each Marshal in the Savannah State University 
Academic Procession carries an official mace, which is indicative of the power, dignity, and magisterium 
vested in the University. The mace is a club-shaped staff that originated in the Middle Ages as 
a weapon. Eventually, it gained a ceremonial character and is presently employed most often by 
legislative forums and academic enterprises. 

The official mace and stand of Savannah State University were designed and made from mahogany 
wood by Dr. Ernest S. Brown, Associate Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering Technology. 

The University motto is "Lux Et Veritas" (Light and Truth).

Academic Regalia 

Modern academic dress has evolved from a type of apparel prescribed by English Medieval Universities 
to distinguish their schools from the lay person in dress at a time when everybody wore robes or gowns. 
When American colleges and universities desired to adopt some suitable system of academic apparel a 
half century ago, it seemed best to agree on some definite system which all might follow. Accordingly, 
this attire has consisted of the cap, the gown, and the hood, the latter two now differing according to 
the degree the wearer has received. 

The modern cap, in academic dress, has the same design for all degrees: black and square-shaped 
with a tassel hanging from the center. However, the color of the tassel usually differentiates the field 
of study for which the degree was granted, the gold tassel being worn by doctors or by presidents of 
colleges and universities; but it may be added that the black tassel is correct for all degrees. 

The gown, unlike the cap, differs appreciably in design according to the degree conferred on the 
wearer. The gown for the bachelor's degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn closed. The 
gown for the master's degrees, worn open or closed, has an oblong sleeve, open at the wrist, like the 
others. The sleeve base hangs down in the traditional manner. The rear part of its oblong shape is 
square cut, and the front part has an arc cut away. The doctor's gown, worn open or closed, has long 
sleeves faced with velvet; three bars of velvet are midway the sleeves. The trimmings of the doctor's 
gown may be black or the color associated with the field of study. 

The hood, while not an article of dress, is however, the most distinctive feature of the academic 
attire. It is a black, crow-shaped badge or adornment with an oval opening and worn down the back. 
It enables one to quickly determine not only the degree held by the wearer but also the college or 
university from which he is graduated. The colors lining the hood and the size and the shape of the 
hood make this distinction. The bachelor's and master's hoods are three feet and three and a half feet 
in length, respectively; the doctor's hood is four feet in length and is made with a wide panel. Hoods 
may be worn for only those degrees actually held by the wearers. 

Members of the governing body of a college or university, and they only, whatever their degrees may 
be, are entitled to wear doctor's gowns (with black velvet), but their hoods may be only those of 
degrees actually held by the wearers or those especially prescribed for them by the institution. 

In some colleges and universities, it is customary for the president, chancellor, or chief officer to wear 
a costume similar to that worn by the head of a foreign university. 

The chief marshal may wear a specially designed costume approved by the institution. 

For all academic purposes, including trimmings of doctor's gowns, edging of hoods, and tassels of caps, 
the color associated with different subjects as prescribed by the revised American Intercollegiate 
Code is as follows: 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White Oratory (Speech) Silver Gray 

Business Drab Philosophy Dark Blue 

Economics Copper Physical Education Sage Green 

Education Light Blue Public Administration Peacock Blue 

Law Purple Science Golden Yellow 

Library Science Lemon Social Work Citron 

Music Pink Theology Scarlet 

At Savannah State University, the lining of the hood has an orange chevron on a blue background to 
represent school colors. A faculty member wears the color of his alma mater.

The academic regalia, the academic processional, and the ceremonial program are part of 
an ancient tradition of learning. This tradition is a unified, solemn occasion at which only 
applause is appropriate. 

The audience is asked to refrain from any other form of expression and to reserve 
celebrations until the program is concluded.

Original words and music by J. Randolph Fisher and Hillary Hatchett 



Let us give thanks and praises to 

Our Alma Mater, S.S.U. 

Thine honor, pride, and eminence. 

We raise in prayerful reverence. 

Guide us still from day to day, 

Be Thou mindful lest we lose our way; 

Help us know that life, short or long, 

Means unceasing work for weak and strong. 



Refrain 

Where Savannah meets the sea, 

Where grassy plains and palms abound, 

Where the Flow 'rs are gems of loveliness, 

There S.S. U. is found. 

We adore each beauteous scene and hall, 

Our all we pledge to Thee! 

In our hearts we 11 build a shrine for You 

We hail Thee, S.S.U. ! 



Lyrical Revision by Ms. LaGina M. Frazier
